When it comes to building out your van, planning your electrical system should be a top priority. A well-designed electrical system ensures you have reliable power for all your needs, both now and in the future. From lighting and charging points to power inverters and solar charging, there are many components to consider. At Pura Vida Vans, we’re here to help you navigate this complex process, ensuring you make the right choices for your van build.


Once you know your power needs, you can start selecting the right components for your system. This includes batteries, wiring, charge controllers, inverters, and solar panels.

Lithium or AGM?

Choosing the right battery is crucial for your van's electrical system. The two most common types are Lithium and AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat).


These are known for their high energy density, longer lifespan, and lighter weight. They can handle more charge and discharge cycles than AGM batteries, making them a great choice for van builds where weight and efficiency are important.


These are a type of lead-acid battery known for their durability and reliability. They are generally cheaper than lithium batteries but are heavier and have a shorter lifespan. AGM batteries can be a good option if you’re on a tighter budget and don’t mind the extra weight.
